Our Background

Established in 1963 within Guy’s Hospital London providing Medical Toxicology and Information Services under the “Guy’s poisons unit” designation.

In 1996 ESMS was set up as a division within the poisons unit to provide medical response and emergency unblinding services specifically for the pharmaceutical industry.

In 2011, ESMS became a private limited company.

The ESMS team of scientists and consultant physicians are available 24 hours a day to respond to medical enquiries regarding trial subjects. If the investigator is unavailable, ESMS will answer the emergency enquiry helping you ensure regulatory compliance!
